Palu Matamoana

And as I look into the deep oceans of my mind

The spirit of Palu Matamoana is within me

Seeing our life source with mixed feelings

As a Tongan and Hawaiian

A mix

of Ancestors sunken by

A fleet of his own brothers

For turning it’s back

and as I reflect I can see

a large Lei o Mano encompassing us all

that we together can swing

and chop our enemy as they couldn’t imagine

as a weapon used

by the Unifying King in this way we can repeat history

as a group


We have only to remember

our history

our origin

Our place in the world today

and not forget

how we are tied

and each a thread

in the victory.
